Intel Optane Memory: high CPU usage in Lenovo Yoga C 740

2020-05-25, 3:35 AM

Hi,

 

I recently purchased a Lenovo Yoga C 740, 15.6'' laptop and noticed something peculiar. While charging, the Intel Optane Memory constantly uses up quite a bit of processing power such that, even when nothing is running, the CPU is at 30%, with the fans running. As a result, it also feels like the laptop charges slower that it is supposed to. I don't know if if happens every time I charge the laptop, but it is frequent. There are brief periods when this process stops, but it usually persists for the most part. Can anyone help me out with this?

Solved! See the solution

Intel Optane Memory: high CPU usage in Lenovo Yoga C 740

While performance may or may not be affected (do this at your own risk) try disabling Optane optimizations in Task Scheduler. The settings look like these. You could also try disabling Optane entirely with the Storage Management app Optane has but like I said, performance might or might not be affected How the settings look: https://www.reddit.com/r/intel/comments/g8qegv/i_keep_on_putting_these_settings_for_intel_optane/

I disabled it and there doesn't seem to be any problems.
